An abstract digital graphic piece I did way back in 2004.

Billingham Hadley Small

Billingham Hadley Small camera bag

The Billingham Hadley Large is a very useful camera bag but I found it to be too big on occasions when I preferred something smaller. I really like the quality of Billingham and was deciding between the f-stop 2.8 and the Hadley Small for my small camera bag.

Ricoh GR Digital III

Ricoh GR Digital III

With Ricoh’s announcement of the Ricoh GR Digital IV two days ago, I felt that it’s time for me to share my experience with its predecessor, the Ricoh GR Digital III. The Ricoh GR Digital series is known for its popularity in Japan. Outside of Japan, it is less well-known.

first-film

My first roll of film

This roll of Fujifilm Superia 200 had quite an interesting journey. It was loaded in my dad’s Nikon F3 but the shutter tore after a few shots and the film had to be removed. I thought they would be exposed when the roll was removed from the camera.

Olympus XA2

Olympus XA2

I have heard praises for the Olympus XA2. I spotted one on sale when I chilling out in Cat Socrates. The camera is still in good condition. I succumbed to temptation.

iPad 2

iPad 2

I got my iPad 2 nearly a month after it was launched in Singapore. In hindsight, I would have gotten it earlier had I ordered it online. Nevertheless, I'm enjoying the experience so far.

Bokeh

Flickriver

I like to browse photos taken by others to learn from them and when I need inspiration. Flickr is probably the largest image site and it should be the first place to search for photos. One of the sites that I like to use to browse Flickr is Flickriver.

Billingham Hadley Large camera bag

It had always been my dream to own a Billingham camera bag. The legendary label exudes an aura of sheer elegance that other brands cannot match. Like a Lamborghini Gallardo, the Billingham is not just about looks but also sensible practicality.

MacBook Air

MacBook Air

I made the plunge and purchased my first MacBook. It is not that I finally discovered the advantages of using a Mac. The timing was just right and several factors tipped the scale to MacBook Air’s favour.

Kenny Dalglish

The King returns

I was in Phuket for a short vacation the previous weekend. Unlike Bali, free wireless internet is almost non-existent in Phuket. Paid wireless internet allowed brief updates from the rest of the world. One particular tweet caught my attention on Sunday morning. Kenny Dalglish is the new manager of Liverpool FC.

My Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G

If you see the difference between the 50mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/1.4 lenses, you should just buy the f/1.4 version. This is my advice for people looking for a 50mm lens. This comes from my experience with Nikon’s 50mm lenses.

New Year 2011

New Year resolutions for 2011

New Year resolutions generally tend to reflect the ideals we wish to achieve but have the tendency to be unrealistic. Rather than set specific goals to achieve this year, I decided to go with a more realistic list of targets for the start of a new decade.

My horoscope – Leo

Some people have a habit of checking their horoscopes. I don’t. However, curiosity got the better of me today and I browsed a write-up on my horoscope, Leo.

Riverdance

Riverdance at Marina Bay Sands

My love for Riverdance started back when I was just fourteen. I watched the VCD of the Riverdance Live at Radio City at least thirty times. The mesmerizing music and synchronized foot taps attracted me. Thus, it was a dream come true to finally watch the performance live.

Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love is a show that I would definitely recommend, especially if you are going through a tough period in your relationship or is still recovering from a failed one. 

Think Tank Retrospective 20 pinestone

Think Tank Retrospective 20

The AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens came with a Nikon lens bag. However, I wanted a bag that I could carry my camera body together with other lenses that I’ll need in a photoshoot. The Kata DR-466i backpack can be used to serve this but that would mean I need to configure its compartment […]
